On this double CD, Countdown to Putsch push well beyond the current limits of their subculture's aesthetic, experimenting in search of a future for hardcore punk. The results range from discordant noise to free jazz to radical theatre, but all are challenging and unique, not to mention politically topical and eloquent. This is not the background music you've been socialized to stomach, but rather a provocation to sit down, think through, and draw upon. 36 songs in well over two hours, and a 44-page booklet to boot. More information is available on the Countdown to Putsch website.
